Not going to let a few rain showers stop you from riding? Good call. But while you can get wet, you might prefer if some of your stuff stayed dry. Which is precisely why Camelbak has introduced their new M.U.L.E. EVO 12. Their first pack with welded seams and a TPU coating, the EVO is completely waterproof and is ready for adventures.

Other than the waterproof construction, the other thing that makes the M.U.L.E. EVO 12 unique are the vest-style straps. The open mesh construction and Air Support back panel will help keep you cool and help things dry out after a downpour, plus they offer additional storage pockets out front to help balance the load. There’s also an overflow pocket on the back which allows you to stash wet things like an outer layer once it stops raining, without getting everything inside wet.

The pack offers a 3L water bladder and hydration hose, and 12L of internal storage and will sell for $140.

Adding to their hip belt collection, the new Podium Flow 4 Hip Belt centers the Podium bottle for better weight distribution. It also offers four liters of storage from the zippered pockets on the wings, plus stretch pockets on the outside.
